Report: Neil Lennon In The Frame For Managerial Role At European Powerhouse

Neil Lennon has had an interesting managerial career over the last decade or so.

He would take his first job in management at Celtic, going on to have a successful four year spell at Parkhead. He would then spend time at the likes of Bolton and Hibernian, before returning to The Hoops in 2019.

While his second spell in charge did not quite end the way he would have liked, he still managed to land a domestic treble in the 2019/20 campaign.

Since then, he has had a spell in Cypriot football. His time with Omonia was largely a success, winning a Cypriot Cup and leading the club to the Europa League group stages last season. However, he would leave the club in October after a run of poor domestic form.


He has been out of work since then, although it looks like he is in the frame for a job on the continent.

Neil Lennon linked with European management role

The Scottish Sun are reporting that Neil Lennon is on the shortlist to become the next manager of Olympiacos.

The most successful club in Greek football and a consistent performer on the continental stage, their tally of 47 league titles makes them one of the most prolific clubs in European football.


In saying that, the club have fallen short of expectations this season. They finished third in the Super League, outside of the Champions League reckoning. This is the first time they have not won the title since 2019. They also underperformed in Europe, and were eliminated from Champions League qualifying in the second round of qualifying by Maccabi Haifa. They then finished bottom of their Europa League group. As a result, manager Míchel was relieved of his duties last month.

This would certainly be an intriguing opportunity for Lennon, who would have every chance to add to his managerial trophy haul should he take the role. You would imagine that Olympiacos will be right in the mix for honours again next season, with a place in the Europa League also on offer.

He could certainly do worse.
